The Ohio River here is kind of high. That pole in the lower right is an electrical service pole, and if I stood at the base, the water would be well over my head. But coal, petroleum products, limestone, chemicals and other commodities must be delivered, and as long as the locks let them through, the boats will run.
It would have been nice following the Jerry Tukey down the river and gotten different shots from different angles at sunset, but neither Adam nor I was dressed for the really cold weather. So we let it go.
